Vermette scored three game-winning goals during the postseason, including two in the Stanley Cup Final en route to winning his first Stanley Cup with Chicago, who won its third Cup in six seasons by defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning in six games. He tallied four goals and three assists in 20 games this postseason. He also won more than 58 percent of his faceoffs to lead the Hawks at the dot.
The 32-year-old was acquired Feb. 28 from the Coyotes, and cost the Hawks their first-round pick this year and a prospect in defenseman Klas Dahlbeck.
The veteran has tallied 25 points (13 goals, 12 assists) in 77 postseason games with across seven postseason runs: Ottawa Senators (2004-07), Columbus Blue Jackets ('09), Coyotes ('12) and Hawks ('15).
Vermette was drafted in the second round, 55th overall, of 2000 NHL Entry Draft by Ottawa.
